I am approximently 175 lbs overweight. I am looking for a diet to supplement my increased physical activity.
Your best bet is to meet with a dietitian who can help you develop an eating plan that’s designed for weight loss, and that will also help you manage your diabetes at the same time. Any “diet” that you might find on, say, the Internet or in a book is unlikely to help you be successful because it won’t be tailored to the way you like to eat, your diabetes treatment plan, and your physical activity. And since you have a lot of weight to lose, you need a personalized approach that you can stay with long term. You might also decide that a commercial weight loss program or a meal replacement program might be beneficial for you, but this is a conversation that you should have with a dietitian. Ask your physician to refer you to a dietitian in your community, or go to www.eatright.org to locate one in your area.
